“Tim’s voice has never sounded better or more emotive. His lyrics are personal, yet universal, with plenty of Enz eggs to keep hard-core fans happy for months. Meanwhile, Eddie Rayner’s production work is simply breath-taking…lush, inventive, dramatic and intimate. This is a rich, sumptuous album that will reveal new musical pleasures with each spin of the disc. Here’s hoping there’s more gold to be mined where these Shades and Echoes were found.”
– Marty Duda (13th Floor NZ)
"The new songs prove - if proof were needed - that Rayner is a fine arranger. The way he balances spooked keyboard sounds with lush orchestral textures is on full display here."
– Barry Divola (Sydney Morning Herald)
"Tim Finn reunites with the bands long-time genius keyboardist and arranger Eddie Rayner for this joint project, aptly called Forenzics. Littered like DNA traces at a crime scene are fragments from early and mid period Enz songs serving as touchstones for Shades and Echoes, an album of 14 otherwise brand new songs that randomly reference the bands glorious pop past."
– Phil Stafford (The Australian)
“Thoroughly loving exploring the album so far… Why?
A: I am enjoying the ‘Shades and Echoes’ that are unlocking complete songs stored in the ancient synaptic layers of the past.
B: Appreciating the beautiful engineering and careful curating of each sound.
C: Moved by the extraordinary levels of musicianship.
D: Totally love the blending of Tim and Megan’s voices.
E: Stimulated by the evocative, wistful tenderness of the lyrics…and soundscape.
Well worth the wait.”
– John Charles Sharpe (Forenzics FB fan)
"Nothing has been as musically ambitious as Forenzics, Tim and Enz keyboard player Eddie Rayner’s deep delve into the bands earliest days."
– Andy Fyfe (Mojo Magazine UK)
